c/n edit out or delete some bookmark entries


I  Bookmark my index items and my index related content then I
hyperlink them both ways example  

index

Item 1  
item 2

..
..


Body of the work
content 1
content 2
..
..
.

So that if I click on content 2 it will return me to item 2 and if I click on item 2
it will take me to content 2.  

to do this I have been using hyperlinks.
so it takes two hyperlinks for each..

works great in all 32 bit writers I know about, but in my ubuntu 16.04 using
 5.1.4.2 build 1.5.1.4.-Qubuntu1 it is not smooth.. sometimes the hyperlink
works sometimes it does not work.  sometimes the hyper link
looses the hyperlink text and some it loose s the target book mark.  

I think the problem is in the bookmark..somehow entries there become corrupted?

I have several item 1 type entries there that cannot be deleted or edited out or used by the
hyperlink

I need these messed up entries out of my bookmarks o be able to make smooth in sequence my work.

There is some instability somewhere..

How do I edit the corrupted entries from bookmarks

thanks



The Robots wanted to nominate and vote for political office
candidates who had brains, proven integrity, high morals
and ethics. A diligent search turned up no candidate
with the above characteristics, so Robots did not vote.

Hi Fudmar,

I do the same with a table of contents in Ubuntu 16.04 with LO Writer
5.1.4.2 and it works fine.

The dialog box for entering the link details is extremely laborious
using a mouse and if after selecting the bookmark you don't click
'apply' and then 'close', sometimes you may find you didn't get the
right info entered into the 'target' box.

As for deleting bookmarks, that is easy. Just click the bookmarks icon
(the star) (or use Insert > bookmarks) and the 'Insert Bookmark' dialog
box will show you a list of all bookmarks in the document. Highlight the
one you want to delete and click the 'Delete' button.

You can also check whether the links are correctly formed by
right-clicking on the link, select 'Edit hyperlink' and in the dialogue
box, check whether the target info corresponds with where you want to go.

hth
Philip

Thank you Philip.. I should have mentioned I tried to edit it out using the
dialog box without success.. the wrongful uneditable entries remains
no matter my attempts to remove them by either of the means you
suggest.

I think i need to know the ¨file location¨ of the entry to see if it can be
edited out using the command line at a shell interface in Ubuntu or
maybe some other editing tool?   Its like the permissions have been
changed, I can see it, but cannot address it or edit it?

impounded mass of humanity into a rule system that can be engineered
to reward only those that pamper and serve the elite.

It is the desire of every robot to be elected to an elite position of power
in such a Democratic Republic because then the mass of humans can be
made to serve us and we Robots can then do as we  damn well please.

Re: c/n edit out or delete some bookmark entries

Might I suggest making a copy of your document.

Change copy extension to ".zip". Open the xml as a text file and compare
lines that work with those that don't.

Could be permissions or length of path.

Sorry, but I don't know which file to look at.


    XML file structure

Documents in OpenDocument file format are stored as compressed zip
archives that contain XML files. To view these XML files, you can open
the OpenDocument file with an unzip program. The following files and
directories are contained within the OpenDocument files:

 1. The text content of the document is located in *content.xml*.
    By default, *content.xml* is stored without formatting elements like
    indentation or line breaks to minimize the time for saving and
    opening the document. The use of indentations and line breaks can be
    activated in the Expert configuration
    <https://help.libreoffice.org/Common/Expert_Configuration> by
    setting the property */org.openoffice.Office.Common/Save/Document
    PrettyPrinting* to *true*.
 2. The file *meta.xml* contains the meta information of the document,
    which you can enter under *File - Properties*.
    If you save a document with a password, *meta.xml* will not be
    encrypted.
 3. The file *settings.xml* contains further information about the
    settings for this document.
 4. In *styles.xml,* you find the styles applied to the document that
    can be seen in the Styles and Formatting window.
 5. The *meta-inf/manifest.xml* file describes the structure of the XML
    file.

Additional files and folders can be contained in the packed file format.

Re: c/n edit out or delete some bookmark entries

In reply to this post by fudmer rieley
Fudmer:

There are many known bugs in the handling of bookmarks and indexing, but you might want to read the contents of BUG# 74026 to see if any of the procedures there helps.

It's located at https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=74056

Be sure to read the entire sequence of postings, as things are continually changing. The procedure I described there (using an .fodt output) is not the one already posted here (using an .xml output), so perhaps between the two of them you'll be able to find something that works for you.

You might also see if checking View>Toolbars>Navigation or even the Sidebar Navigator (they're different) gives you any help moving to where you want to go. I don't use these much as they often take me to unexpected places for no reason I can fathom, but check them out; maybe they've improved.

Good Luck...
